In its architectural policy the government is defining the goals for action to be taken by the public authorities in order to enhance architecture. In addition to the programmatic guidelines it includes many concrete proposals for specific actions. The architectural policy emphasises both the citizens’ right and duty to take responsibility of their own environments. This is why architectural education and information about architecture needs to be enhanced. Important goals of the policy are to raise the quality of public building and property management to a higher level and thus set an example to the whole construction sector in our country, to promote the use of methods which will advance good architecture and high quality building, to enhance innovation through professional architectural education and through research and development work, to enhance the conservation of our architectural heritage and development of the environments as a part of cultural history and architecture.
